The New York Times bestselling multimedia book, "We Interrupt This Broadcast: The Events That Stopped Our Lives ?From the Hindenburg Explosion to the Virginia Tech Shooting," is back with new events, photos and audio in its tenth anniversary edition.

What has been the defining moment in the 2008 Presidential election?

  • How has war coverage evolved from Operation Desert Storm to Iraqi Freedom?
  • Does the current economic crisis represent a landmark moment?
  • How has OJ Simpson`s past legal troubles impacted his current sentencing?
  • What goes into a truly historic event, as opposed to a media creation?

The tenth anniversary edition of We Interrupt This Broadcast has been updated to include the defining events of the past five years, including the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Hurricane Katrina, and the Virginia Tech shootings.

The book features three audio CDs narrated by veteran journalist Bill Kurtis that contain more than two hours of rare original broadcasts of forty-six famous and infamous moments in history, more than 250 photos, new interviews with newsmakers, and an afterword from NBC`s Brian Williams.
